I have a mixture of a few thousand flac files and a few thousand mp3 files for the SB. I created a playlist of all of the flac files but it is just a very long song listing. Is there a way I can look at the flac files by album? Not sure of SQL Playlist would display it like I am looking for, and before I purchase the license, I wanted to see if anyone can come up with ideas. Thanks.

LMS 7.9 can manage virtual librarys for all kind of sql statements.

If you dont want to upgrade you may disable mp3 as recon filetypes and do a clear & rescan then only othr files like flac would import into your lib.

Go for 7.9 its beta not buggy:o

How can LMS manage virtual libraries ?

How can LMS manage virtual libraries ?

"Multi Library" Plugin ?

Not used it personally but seems to fit the bill

Use the Advanced Search in the web UI and save a search as a library
definition.

You might want to enable the Library Demo plugin, too, as it comes with
a "flac preferred" definition by default.

Whoa didn't know that thanks , while I have your ear ! Can you describe to me how I can get a definitive count of contributors using Sqlite ? - you might of noticed I'm developing a PDF documenting application to list peoples collections in a PDF document and whilst the artists, albums and tracks seems to be accurate for me and *some* others this is not always the case

Thanks for your time

info total artists ?

The total count depends on various settings in LMS. Therefore a SQL
query won't do it. But why try to re-invent the wheel when you can use
simple CLI commands to get what you need?

But that's highly off-topic here.

DJ-I bit the bullet and went for 7.9. Took a while to figure out the virtual library setup but finally got it and now I have a separate flac library. Thanks for the suggestion!
